Yellow on Yellow...




I keep a section of my lawn unmowed, it's my minature meadow. Since black eyed susans are biannuals, every other year the unmowed section is covered with them. For the rest of this week I'll be posting photos of the critters that I find on the blacked eyed susans. I found the crab spider on Saturday and I took the top photo. I went and checked again on Sunday and it was still there but this time it was having dinner so I took the bottom picture.

FANTASTIC John!!

So funny because I have been mowing a patch around my back yard that has a pretty pink flower there. Need the tripod to get good pictures of that!

How wonderful! I wish I could leave my entire yard as a meadow, but that would surely bring on lawsuits!

I think it's great that you leave part of lawn unmowed!
Neat shots too!!

I had no idea they are biennials. We have such an abundance of black-eyed-susans I just assumed they came back every year. I guess that means I have twice as many as I thought?

Great camo... thanks for sharing both of these wonderful shots..

Super! How wonderful to capture that dinner moment :-) I would love to leave more of my lawn unmowed and ragged and full of wildflowers, but the neighbors would have a fit. I already have the worst looking lot in the place with my sunflowers around the front door, a dead tree full of bird feeders, and untrimmed bushes with a natural look :-)

Thank you for my lovely stroll through a northern hemisphere meadow. I do miss them so much! Thanks also for sharing your photpgraphic know how. When I got my new camera, didn,t realise it had no macro and I do miss it. Will have to make a trip into town to my trusty camera shop. Thanks again.
